# Solve: 26-7 (3+5) / 4 +7?

You perform the order of operations

First: You solve the parenthesis first which equals: 26-7 8 / 4 +7.

Next: You work your problem starting from the left as required in math:

7 x 8 = 56 therefore the problem is now 26 - 56 / 4 +7.

Second: 56 / 4 = 14 the problem is now 26 - 14 +7

Third: 26 - 14 = 12 the problem is now 12 + 7 = 19

The answer is 19

Did I do this correctly? If not then what did I do wrong, please explain.
